LB's family and the people she has touched in her lifetime are raising funds for her vet expenses.

We found out that LB had Osteosarcoma (bone cancer), a highly aggressive form of cancer. LB had her right hind leg amputated because of a huge tumor mass that had grown inside and around her bone. The results of the biopsy confirmed it was Osteosarcoma (bone cancer). Her case was also very advanced. We couldn’t afford chemo for LB after putting everything we could toward her surgery, biopsy, and vets bills. Almost 6,000 dollars later, come to find out, even if we could do chemo it probably wouldn’t have worked. LB lost her fight with cancer, and her other hind leg lost function too. Our main concern was to make sure LB was comfortable. She was on some heavy pain meds, and steroids. She made it about two months after her surgery, and went to heaven on 09/29/12. If you are an animal person, you know how special your pets are to you and your family. We are asking for donations through this site to put towards LB’s vet bills we’re trying to pay off. LB, a brindle pit bull chocolate lab mix, wasn’t supposed to live at three months old when we first adopted her from SEACA in Downey. We had to sign a waiver for no refund if LB passed away, because they didn’t believe she was going to make it. She was skin and bones, and we could tell she had been abused. Ten years later LB has lived a loving, fun, spoiled life. LB is a big lover always looking for attention wherever she can get it. If you saw LB for the first time, you knew she was a sweet dog, and wouldn’t hurt a fly (even though she liked to try to catch them). If LB knew we were hurting or upset she would always sympathize with us, and snap into cuddle mode. You can’t be upset with a sweet dog resting her head on your lap with those puppy dog eyes. She would make sure you pet her by all means. Her specialty was to sit next to you and lean on you, followed by the, “pet me look.” We didn’t even realize how old she was till all this happened. It’s true, time flies when you’re having fun.
